The bilingual officiant is an ordained wedding minister based in Dallas, Texas. Owner and chief celebrant Ignacio is a passionate Christian who brings over ten years of industry experience to the table. He loves nothing more than to help couples curate memorable and heartfelt wedding ceremonies they can cherish for years to come.
Ignacio offers a range of services to help make your big day even more special. He begins the process by requesting that you reach out via his online booking system and will follow up with a complimentary consultation. When you select one of The Bilingual Officiant's wedding packages, a comprehensive pre-marital guidance counseling course is included at no extra charge. This certified PREPARE-ENRICH facilitator encourages couples to compose their own heartfelt vows, which he can seamlessly blend into the ceremony in both English and Spanish. His ceremonies are usually 30 minutes or less in duration, but he is more than happy to customize his services to best suit your needs. In addition, Ignacio can facilitate events such as religious and non-religious ceremonies, civil unions, and vow renewals.

I am an Ordained Minister & US Army Chaplain that believes that ceremonies are to be celebrated in your heart language.
Whether your ceremony is either fully in English or en Español, or a little bit of both; I come alongside you to officiate the ceremony that you envision.
I am third-culture kid (TCK), which means that I was born in Monterrey, México but grew up my teen years in a culture different from the one in which my parents grew up. As a TCK, I've experienced several cross-cultural transitions from the mild mountains of the Andes in Perú to the frigid plains of the Manchuria in Mongolia, that have molded me into the adaptable and charitable person I am today.
I am committed to loving God and others well in all contexts of my life as a follower of Jesus Christ: To my family as I serve as a loving husband and father, to my church community as I serve as a caring pastor, to my local community as I serve as a giving volunteer, and to my country as I serve nurturing the living, caring for the wounded, and honoring the dead as a military chaplain.
Regardless of the type of ceremony you wish to celebrate, whether a wedding, a quinceañera, or a funeral, with over 10 years of experience, I provide religious guidance and support through an integrative pastoral counseling approach with the following qualifications:
+ Master of Arts in Christian Studies from Dallas Theological Seminary
+ Certified PREPARE-ENRICH Facilitator
+ Certified SYMBIS Facilitator
+ Certified Marriage CORE Facilitator
+ Trained PREP Facilitator
+ Completed Level 1 Training of Gottman Method Couples Therapy.
